Transcripción en inglés

You can't help but notice them.

Around 180 life-size posters of naked men are on display in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

They're to promote a new exhibition on male nudity at the city's Leopold museum.

But the posters have prompted complaints from members of the public, who think the pictures are offensive.

The museum reluctantly agreed to cover up the intimate parts of the models.
